SPELT AND WHEAT INTOLERANCE
Wheat intolerance appears to be becoming more common as people consume increasing amounts of highly processed food products, with symptoms such as bloating, weight gain, headaches, joint pains and depression appearing as a result.
As the genetic makeup of spelt is different to wheat it is a grain that many people who suffer wheat intolerance or sensitivity may be able to use. The molecular structure of the protein in spelt is both brittle and soluble, allowing it to be assimilated more easily.
Baker Andrew Whitley, author of the bestselling book Bread Matters, has been selling spelt bread since the 1990s and says: "Overwhelmingly, people come back and tell me that they tolerate spelt better than wheat bread." As spelt does contain gluten, it is unsuitable for coeliacs and people with a true gluten allergy, though many people with wheat intolerance find it a healthier alternative to hybridised wheat.
